Hey the Server here at my company throws an error to certain users when they login at times stating the following:-
"Windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be logged. check that you are connected to network, or that network is functioning correctly. If this problem persists contact your administrator"

How many users are we talking?

Is the problem always on the same machine?

What if the users experiencing the problem log into a machine they have never logged into before?

Are you using roaming profiles?

Do you remember an event or period of time when this started happening?

Of all the users experiencing the problem, is there a common factor with each of them (all in the same OU of Active Directory, all on the same subnet / switch / office / floor, etc.)?

It could be they can't write to their profile directory, or a portion of their profile directory (such in the case if you have redirected their My Documents folder, etc). This problem can be caused by network connectiviy, ntfs permissions or the folders and/or files simply aren't where they are supposed to be.
